Worn Suspension Repair
Howdy. So I bought my TJ Rubicon in December and just got around to taking it to Four Wheel Parts to get the suspension checked out (for free, btw). The results were:
"Needs uuper and lower ball joints, tie rods, shocks, sway bar bushings, alignment with cams, HEIM joint on trac bar, and tire rotation and balance."
Looking at the Quote they provided, theres an additional "hardware pack" charge for $127.99 and $1,320 in labor (ouch).
-Currie Part CE-9701 - Currectlync Heavy-Duty Tie Rod system 479.99
-Replacement Ball Joint Kit x2 - $115.98
-Steering Stabilizer - $35.99
-ES9000 Shocks Front- $81.98
-ES9000 Shocks Rear - $81.98
I was able to locate all of the parts minus the hardware pack and bushings on their site to total it up to $771.92.
I'm going to order these parts soon but was thinking of just doing the replacement between my stepdad and I. He has much more care experience and knowledge than I, but how hard could the install be? Do any of you have experience with any of these parts, and/or know where I could get them for cheaper? Thanks ya'll.
